    Cool 150mW 405nm Blue-Violet "blu-ray" Laser Diode & Module

    Yeah. 150mW. Right.
    Where did you come up with that
    We both know that's a PHR-803 diode from a discarded surplus HD-DVD reader.

    They will do in excess of 150mW

    I think Andy-con's PH803T BR does 190mW.

    I do wonder where the driver is on his laser diode auctions though??? and the fact he says 150mW CW???

    The only person I've seen selling these as complete display projectors which I've seen working videos of, states they're 150mw but are run at 100mw for reliability (nice colour though albeit it doesn't appear to mix with the others):

    So probably on that non scientific but realistic basis, 100mw is a safer bet. I also read from the same guy (the seller not the disco owner), you need to recoat the scanner mirrors with a 405 specific coating as a lot of 405nm is not reflected by the standard coating so standard mirrors are very lossy and poor at this frequency. Again just hearsay though until someone here has tried it.

    indeed mine is running at 190mw, but it has a strict duty cycle

    i do have plans for a ilda 405nm scanner.

    He's posting in a laser show forum, and just because someone's diode 'does' run for a little while at a highly overdriven power does NOT mean that you can go around advertising the diode as if its rated for that. When posting the power ratings in the ad for show use, he should be using the 3-5000 hour lifetime power, not the 1 week or 1 month lifetime power.

    yes that is most deff a PHR-803t

    and it should be advertised as 100mw cw

    there have been people that have gotten away with 130mw cw for very long periods of time. i currently have one set at 150ma and its longest time cw was 3 hours

    its just another guy trying to make money on ebay with faulty statements regarding lasers! shocking

    devils advocate here..

    you could run it at high output in a scanner system that was modulated because you would A) not always have it on and B) not always have it at full power

    you would have to make sure your ahows were mostly green and red, but its doable..

    He stated it as a specification.
    specification

    This is distinct from a capability:
    capability

    this is why it is factually incorrect in no uncertain terms.
